Bloom, Hounsou To Become “Zulu”

Orlando Bloom and Djimon Hounsou are teaming for an adaptation of Caryl Ferey’s novel “Zulu” reports Screen Daily.

Not to be confused with the famous 1964 war film of the same name with Michael Caine, the story has the duo playing Cape Town police officers who investigate the murder of a 18 year-old girl.

Said girl is the daughter of a player on the country’s championship-winning Springboks rugby team, and the killing reveals ties to the country’s apartheid past.

Jerome Salle directs the project which begins shooting in July.
